this card is easy to install and setup. 10 minutes total to have it all setup and ready with windows. And it works great with the dish network i have. This card even decodes hdtv with a 2GHz system!

<p>This review is written on Jan 2, 2005. Software might have gotten better. I believe everyone has heard how good this card is, so I will only talk about down side of this card. It's ironic that the major problems of nexus-s are results of it's advantage. </p> <ul><li>1. Closed Caption is not available in hardware mode. </li> <li>2. HDTV is not availble in hardware mode. </li> <li>3. TV guide OSD is not well developed yet in hardware mode. </li> <li>4. Video output is composite, which is probably the worst standard right now. If you are watching on a HDTV, do not expect to have decent quality. </li></ul> <p>Notice that all problems can be, and have been solved in software mode. (except 4) But if one decides to do software decoding, there's no point getting this card, any budget software decode card will work. Of course, software decode cards will need alot more resource to run. </p>
